Welcome to Past Discoveries Family History and House History Research

Past Discoveries is a genealogical and family history research company offering a friendly and efficient service to those who wish to find out more about their family history. I offer a professional and quality research service to clients worldwide using both online sources and archive material at various archives.  I offer research throughout the UK.  I undertake archive research at the county record offices of Hertfordshire, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and London. I visit all London repositories such as The National Archives, The Guildhall Library, The Principle Probate Registry, The British Library, The Society of Genealogists, Westminster Archives and The London Metropolitan Archives

I enjoy unlocking the interesting facts about your ancestors lives including finding out where they were born, whether they were poor and ended up in the workhouse or whether they were wealthy and led a life in an impressive house with servants. The history of your family can incorporate the house history of where your family lived covering many generations along with incorporating the local history of the village which would cover the social and economic conditions of the time which helps bring your family history to life.  Researching your family history and compiling your family tree can be very rewarding and revealing, as family mysteries are solved and interesting facts are found.  With my skill and knowledge of researching, Past Discoveries can help you find information on your ancestor's lives.  My aim to you is to provide a professional service that is tailored to your specific needs.
